The New England Institute of Art & Communication (Brookline,Mass.) received approval from the Massachusetts Board of HigherEducation in order to offer a Bachelor of Science degree in Audio andMedia Technology.
"This is a tremendous step forward for the college and for ourstudents," said Tom Dyer, Dean of education. "We offer associate'sdegree programs in Audio Production, but this allows our students aunique opportunity to hone and refine their skills, take morebusiness-oriented math and science classes, and spend more time oninternships and in the studios doing hands-on training."
Two concentrations will be offered: Audio Production and Audio andVideo Technology. Students who concentrate in Audio Production "willlearn the skills necessary for entry-level careers in sound recordingfor music and speech applications, in corporate audio/visual, digitalpost-production, digital editing and for Internet and multimediaapplications," said Rob Lehmann, department chair.
For those seeking careers on the repair and maintenance side, theAudio and Video Technology concentration will give students thenecessary skills to seek entry-level positions in that field.
